Episode 1 and 2 First impressions
Chizuru (disguised as a boy) is chased by some guys, who gets killed by these crazy zombie men who then gets killed by normal Shinsengumi men. Chizuru gets taken back to their headquarters for witnessing what happened and there she meets a whole bunch of people, I’ll list them in the order of most popular to least: Hijikata, Souji and Saitou, Heisuke and Shinpachi, Kondou, Sannan and Sano they all sit in a small little circle and nice little chat, and even invited Chizuru to have dinner with them. She explains how she’s looking for her missing father and the Shinsengumi people happens to be looking for him too so they decided to let her stay. Heisuke gets punched in the face for mentioning another group of Shinsengumi (probably the villains)
Haijkata and Sannan returns from their trip, Sannan apparently injured his arm, so he goes all emo hiding in his room and refuses to eat food. Chizuru attempt to convince him to eat his food and he does surprisingly. Souji agree to let Chizuru go out to search for her father if she’s skilled enough so Saitou decides to test her skills, *1 second fight scene* haha it’s obvious who the winner was but Chizuru still got to go out and almost got killed! but thanks to her, they were able to find spies and hidden weapons at the shop. So now the bishie gang decided to go out to bust the Choshuu spies? hideout. Since no one is really sure whether it’s in Shikokuya or Ikedaya (the shop), Kondou the captain decides to split forces. Hijikata and most of the Shinsengumi people will go to Shikokuya while he takes the rest. Turns out the hideout was in Ikedaya and Chizuru goes with some ninja guy to inform Hijikata.
I wasn’t sure what Shinsengumi meant, so I searched it up, “police force” lol
Anyways… I LOVE this show, it’s so awesome. The OP was really catchy and I love the ED theme song.
I’m surprise to see that there are only 13 episodes, guess it’s going to be a really short series. I’m planning on watching all the way, so far there was just a lot of talking, I don’t see how any more disappointing it can get, I’m really enjoying it so far! Probably the main reason I like this show is all the bishies! xD but none of the bishies really stand out much and I still have some trouble remembering the names, 2 of them look so alike. The graphics are really nice and the main protagonist is alright, she seems kinda useless right now but I hope that will change sometime soon, it doesn’t bother me much anyways.
There seems to be some dark secret that the Shinsengumi are trying to keep from everyone, I’m guessing it has something to do with the zombie/failed soldiers, Chizuru’s father probably has something to do with all of this since he’s a doctor and the Shinsengumi are looking for him too, maybe he got kidnapped and working for the bad guys. I can’t wait to see the villains! which is probably the blond guy in the OP, he looks very evil indeed >:) My only complaint is that nothing really happens in each episode, it just gets me so impatience and dying for the next ep, now that all the talking is over, I hope there’s some action in episode 3 I look toward what’s going to happen next :D
